New Avago Technologies Front-End Module Offers Best-in-Class Efficiency for WiFi 5GHz Access Points
Avago front-end modules integrate multiple high-performance technologies to reduce PCB board footprint and simplify design. The AFEM-S105 module leverages the company’s proprietary 0.25 µm GaAs enhancement-mode pHEMT process technology to achieve robust RF performance across voltage and temperature levels, as well as low current consumption. The module exhibits flat gain and good match while providing linear power efficiency to meet stringent 802.11a/n mask conditions.
“Designers are under tremendous pressure to integrate WiFi connectivity to bring new products to market first,” said James Wilson, director of marketing for wireless products at Avago. “Our easy-to-use AFEM-S105 front-end module provides a highly-integrated, compact solution that can be quickly designed in to WiFi access points and portable WiFi applications.”
